. the constitution promises freedom of religion. not freedom from religion. when we heard about santa monica, 59 consecutive years, we said we had to get involved. we have this project called the nativity project. we encourage individual citizens to get a permit. we found a loophole, incredible loophole in santa monica and there is going to be a nativity display there for year 60. the federal judge banned unattended displays. not live nativities like you see here. so december 8, christians and people of good will from all across southern california are coming to passion sides park and there will be a nativity scene. i have here our permit. we had this in front of the united states supreme court yesterday. this is our permit. i would encourage anyone who is having a problem in their community, with nativity scenes, if we are allowed to have a display in front of the united states supreme court and the united states capitol, then any citizen can display the beauty of christmas, the power of christmas, the wonderful message of hope and we're work with pastor dole right now. >> gretchen: so pastor d
